You sit inning like yellow or red or orange or whatever. That's an auto deal and partly. Because I love to moos. So's. As employees. We may get a partly may want to write speaking of tough couple of things are going on here. Mom I like to watch this. The press briefings with dom Sean Spicer because they happen to occur right as they come home put the TV on and find him interesting. Where yesterday teams Flynn. Michaels and rather who is Donald trumps national security advisor went on ahead of Sean Spicer and says that they were putting Iran Iran on notice. Over its destabilizing activity because test fired a ballistic missile. Cited a couple of things for a year first off before Donald Trump's first term is over and I say they accuse you never know. Do you think we will be involved any boots on the ground to war. Another one on new poll shows that 49% of Americans approve of president trounced travel ban. But only a third think it'll make the US safer. Where do you stand. What does that tell you a 49%. Approval of the travel ban. But only 33%. Think it'll make the US safer than mine to travel ban. Now what's your reaction and violent protest at UC Berkeley last night that led to talk being canceled and somebody on Twitter. Says that they couldn't believe that is all of this up pearl for a and I believe the phrase I characterize the speaker is a a Jewish person from Britain. But all of a lot all of adds up for discussion here T 60187. At loading your front it. Andy do you think will be and a boots on the ground war against somebody. Would Donald Trump is the president. In the next four years I just watched video of this Groundhog Day celebration and Punxsutawney Pennsylvania silly guys is like in the movie. Come with the tuxedos they tap on the door three times and they reach in and Nate. They grabbed their groundhog Lou would give back to the audience and you turn around and hold him up like. When that deal in the Lion King massive thing you know whatever they're saying as of it looks like Angus imagine groundhog saying man. One day year. I'll like it one day a year what do you do vague when anger at nine your under the W good morning. How are you. At the island lady cult loads up. At Indy and trop arm. Well he is the new president and it is his first of what they today's fourteenth day in office and as long as he keeps doing some new I think we were probably obliged to comfort dining. Roma yeah yeah and here he's. He's he's gotten more coverage and Barack Obama again when he was elected. Really. It. The child in July does it pollen is beginning and whenever people picker does. And. Keep. And. Seizing key to everything he does. You don't look at his presidential policy you look at it as Donald Trump is doing this to keep his name in news that's what you're saying. One. And he never heard that look that yeah. I. Like what for example. I. Collect what it. But would that concern you want our day something you'd rather. Discuss rather than hearing about Donald Trump what are the things that are more important to you. Any say in it. Trying to. So prod the bottom line is. You didn't vote for him. He yeah he won the election. And you're having a hard time getting off and get over that aren't. Really. Love them what you say on here. I. Oh. Well he has prosthetic arms and arms fourteen days and he has been. Woody column on May sign executive orders and he does in cabinet officials and so forth up to you know author nominations I think it's you know it's important. It. Goes on. My blood. I. It. I think is gone about as flies it's gonna go thank you Glenn and idealism and I'm glad you called but it's obvious. You just don't hear anything about Donald Trump. Because. You'd didn't want him to be president and he has. At some point those of view that did not vote for Donald Trump are gonna have to get over it. And just say okay where we go on here's a nation and I think it happened eight years ago where the people that. You know came with the birthers controversy in and there was something else about President Obama I think eventually they had to use realize that he's the president. And I think this also indicates to me. Is that Donald Trump is a seven year old white man. A lot of people attributed. The resistance to President Obama as latent racism here roses black man that people couldn't accept his present. And I'm beginning to wonder if Barack Obama's race had anything to do with anything. And office about that are it's more about partisanship. Where if you're assigned loses you're gonna be so bitter year and do everything you can and to make sure. That the other side in their party accomplishes nothing. And if that's the case then I don't know where we go as a country because you can't. Yeah I can win all the time. And if their body holds out to get what they want the you know nobody knowing it's anything. We're gonna have an update from CBS on the Delaware prison standoff. And get a feel for those guys man they're being held hostage split but did they hear from me at 2601878. From. Couple questions we've pointed out do you think that America will be in a war. By the time Donald Trump's first term is finished or not. And 49% of Americans approve of president trumps travel ban. But only its third of them think it makes us safer where do you stand on that do you approve of it. And do you think it makes us safer bleak welding when and so we talked about Donald Trump too much but. He has constantly doing different things in the as the newly elected president of the country the leader of the free world and it uses verse fourteen days. 2601870. Another thing we're talking about here is. Dom a new poll that's out says that 49% of the country favors the band that president trump has put on. Travel. But only a third think it makes the US safer. So what about that gap and would you believe in between India approve or disapprove. Of the band lawyer Thomas argued there deal approve or disapprove of the band. Of their own on that I'm not certainly each. The president's point you know. You'd happily. Everybody on the from look and could be great it only takes one or country together who know. Who who these people are. But on the other hand we're not doing acute in the other group of people so. I pump and the mix on Obama Clinton thing that you work. Earlier you said it. Bet he. Barack Obama issue or not. Well guidance what I said was. Looking at the Democrats dragging their feet in Washington looking at. The bomb the people that did not vote for him that lost the election if you will. And the and tank in the antagonism that would sort of thing you know the I've done mum mum mum. The if he had not hatred. Animosity the they have to warn him as a thinking of from. It just makes me wonder if all of that with President Obama was about race or. If that may be a lot of that was just about partisan politics on me read a text. They comes in here and it's says. Tommy it's because Americans have evolved into whiny privileged children who pout and throw tantrums well we don't get her way out and vote for trump. But more important than being represented of my party and an American and sometimes that means biting the bullet and excepting when I don't wanna happened. So I just wonder if some of the that the negativity against Barack Obama had nothing to do with the race and was sent blues simply York. Preview of what was gonna happen every time a president elected in somebody loses. Well. Decorate. The Latin. If you can be one of the president who had that Mercury challenge. Fortier and to their president you then then I. Okay we can talk about it non racial but the fact that for an American president. And for years. Millions of people trying to say Latin America. Although you had done things that were not warned it was awarded to a canal. Being questioned him. Panama art animal. You have an immigrant who was born in. That one questioner. But Barack Obama they did so it's part they're not and the fact sheet black. And it really an art in that race wasn't a part. I'd thank you Lloyd of course you could be committing a post Ike here go propped her high. Mistaken your argument in saying that. While nobody else and I don't know who else's legitimacy was challenged in terms of being born and the president. But because he was the person he was black air goes because he was black and another that. Necessarily follows will north's you're talking about Donald Trump and do you think after he put Iran on notice yesterday there were going to be in a war. Before you as the first term is up in the next three now three and years and eleven months or whatever it's been hey well. My popular. We don't tournament as well while our. I believe some. It operates. When where or why. It was electric and that it the truck and a guy in all more. Or cricket country. Where Barack Obama was elected president. It is your. Job but today kitty you know it and he would give her president people whom look Black America brought. Getting its separate part of America know what this elected to say that. Governor what degree I gave the kkk. I'll about it. All the white supporters groups well out there the same thing it's always going to be a whole. Was. I certainly hope our a lot of time on today I don't think you can blame. Anyone for some money coming out in their support Connecticut at white supremacist you know lined up supporting me and it doesn't mean that I. Side with them it just seems as though we've been ignoring the Super Bowl and on and that's because. I don't mean here to radio station Davida PO I mean in general you know leaders. If I should put on my Jimmy Carter sweater and given a general among Lee's speech. Eight game it seems as though there's not a lot of interest and I don't know if that's because. The presidential election. I don't know if it's because here in New Orleans once you've been into the big audience. Is that any good to watch it from outside you know I mean. Are you pumped up about the super blow and it says. Tenet refer him but the game itself. Still six Super Bowl when it's there is on to understand that it. You kitten. Seoul. Com because of that year of being sued and most entrance on I think a lot Hillary's you know funnel a lot of Super Bowl excitement that it is the fear of the Atlanta Falcons winning a title. I know we can talk about that 2260187. EU pump for the Super Bowl you're excited about it. Problem that the final score is like 56 to three New England acting new England's gonna win in game we'll talk more about this tomorrow but it just seems like we're in a Super Bowl season and with me anyway it's. If the saints oriented channel you know an overly Caro some people are looking forward to the Specter of Roger Goodell. Handing Tom Brady the trophy but I guess he handed to the owner not. Yeah but assuming Brady wins MVP he'll via their mobile platform when all that's happening. We'll see 2601 examining a couple of things where you could talk about Tom and me throw this out there do you think. Who always received better with less controversy President Obama when he was first elected or president trough. Now there's you know offers and while fourteen days and it's meant to know what you think. And do you think that. What we're seeing now is kinda like what we saw with President Obama. Which means. It's not about race and it's about and we are now becoming so uncivil politically. That we refuse to accept the other person that wins and automatically there as but he once said on sign felt that at all at all. And so we don't parkers. And jamming and I 260 points at any money up front. I I think what we saw with President Obama ahead not as much to do with the racism people would think. And a lot more to do with. The lack of civility in politics these days and effect dead if you don't if I don't. If my side doesn't win everything they do socks and automatically don't like. And I think I think there are people that feel that way and I just unaware that leads with Oz is a country this is often like about job that's where you know you know you never know what you're gonna get. And we started talking and suddenly I was wondering and that is revelation maybe from a call from Wayne thank you glendening listen in for calling. That may be. What we're seeing in right now. Is kinda like what happened when President Obama was elected to analyze people's words repeating that to racism and maybe it had no. Not as much to do with races we thought. And maybe it was a beginning. The lack of civility. The losing party was going to hand them a text comes in and says. Yes but the Republicans didn't get out and ride in the streets no they didn't you know like these Republicans for the most part don't. With the Republicans do is send around means and the emails and jokes in this and than any other thing undermining whoever it is that's elected president. Or firstly you wouldn't virtually but vice president one hand you. But I would like to know what you think about that and compare the way Donald Trump is being treated with a wave President Obama. Was treated when he was elected. Elena you know if it's about a loss of civility or about strictly that president was the President Obama was happily. Celia in new loans and of its neighbor Gabriel here and VW good morning. Well thank you and you sooner. Oh well. Off on the bag. You know. Go back. I don't know about twelve or so years. Lot of issues going on in the Middle East that Eric that Americans. And at peace. Groups building. And President Clinton really not doing very much about that an. Immense and they're out there right well it's an office and we have. Well President Clinton and I believe I read this and this is accurate had a chance to take out Osama bin Laden. And didn't take the shattered les aid data know if it was a did dead solid certainty but he decided not to do that will check the facts about that in a minute ago ahead. Correct so. So then you're on eleven and then we had strict travel ban their for a while because what happened. And then we get safer. And we get comfortable. And then truncate tyranny and ice at the building Obama does very little about it. And sold globally. Ice is is actually not building right I is prices. Anywhere near straw house they once were prices is. Are you that building right now that. In Obama record judged on say accurate here you know I mean it seems like ice is on the run into anything. I mean building now being an Obama presidency. And then re. So it builds it was sealed things happening in Europe. And so yes I mean I think that our. Our safety or security at airports in the way we travel in the gotten lax over the last. And twelve years since. Not been what happened so. Yeah I think a brand just that people little bit more closely. Nothing wrong with do you think in this country safer. What they give it the country's April that relate to be singing. It's. It depends wrote the only have been issue we're out it was kind of rat the patient and not really well thought out without you and. La. Green court record. People like Gabriel let me interrupt for second you know what I thought one in my and Arizona and Akron import but I can't think of little LPR thing legal permanent residents of yet a green card. Fewer. If you for whatever reason. And made the flight and and you were returned. Who's gonna pay for that next flight because it seems as though is the United States changes the policy now and says that you have a green card. And your legal permanent resident that you can come into the country would seem to me that we owe them a slight doing. Much. I think about things like that thank you Gabriel I'm glad you called talking about president trump. And his first fourteen days I think we're up to now. Or dumb President Obama and in the early days. Were both treated equally sometimes. Are some people thought that the opposition to President Obama was based on race and I'm wondering if now maybe it was just a harbinger of or political relationships and Al lack of respect and and that that's who were seen with Donald Trump. One other thing I wanted to throw out there may open lines next hour. Making news today Donald Trump to weeded. On February 1 Jesse do you believe that the Obama administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia wine I will study. The dumb deal. And as some the Washington Post now his intervention came after. The Washington Post from the guardian and clear that up his intervention came after the Washington Post reported the trumpet despaired of the deal. When talking to the Australian prime minister on Saturday afternoon Sunday morning in Australia. Told him that the conversation was the worst of his round of phone calls with world leaders that day. And brought the 25 minute call to an abrupt close. So I would ask you exists. Do you think the United States. Is obliged. Is morally. Com committed. Does Donald Trump should he. Agree. And follow through on any deal that President Obama made. What do you think T 60187. Like for example. Taking in these those Syrian prisoners which I don't understand why we did either and he doesn't like it. But are we on the hook for deals that President Obama made with a new president trumpet. Or can he break the deal once and now on I'll thanks a mom. Old Don and IV aids on your end of a W on the morning. Or I'm all right you. Or. We ought to be. Yeah. Like them like based on just rate you ought to learn that it would do oh. That tape for the triple. In for the good thing scale can it true which you don't. Reply that we're in very by Perry. Jim you know. The American pool cry. The port. On Mexican because it rate killer murderer. Well one Credo mobile rupture between remote. But there is very divisive to me about it and also because every. And commissioners in the rocks below. Yes. It is a little bit you know the dearly as a human. Beings treatment perimeter their strong again. Make. America or does he want to a bit. Yeah follow. See it's. For president to be president. Everything but war. That shouldn't. Blow to vote for it will be for. And one. America at the present and it pretty well you'll. And had a real thing that I shall. And don't plan. All. It can't. Column I've created oh from the from Oprah. Oh. So true. I can hear us say that it okay. Yeah that may come before. Actually. President of women true. Saudi Arabia. To. And took the pot was holding everybody. What will that Iran and Saudi Arabia but a lot of different. Group the rise and fighting and become strong to me. The way it's been explained to me Don before we run out of time and and seen you know and and stories on NPR and he's and the things. Is that it's almost analogous to having a penicillin knoller some kind of antibiotic they kills just about everything in your body but you don't take a mall. And as a result something comes back stronger that is perhaps antibiotic resistant and it same thing happened here with ices that we didn't take al-Qaeda out completely. And what was left was stronger and meaner and that turned it niceness. Real quickly the question are we bound to any deal that President Obama made. Well there. Were. Alarmed we. Are our solution we got a minister to. Administration that it would or. All bets are off got to thank you Don I'm glad you called 759 we'll talk more one combat W elm.
